With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. Job 12:12

My husband shot this picture of Mom and me, shortly before we left the Nursing Home where we visited her...We took her out for dinner earlier in the afternoon. When we came back to the Nursing Home, the Activity director had given me a project to get some pictures together from Mom's photo albums to put in a booklet of which they were going to do a story about her...It was a little bit of a hit and miss project because I could not find any baby pictures of Mom but did find some family pictures and did the best I could with what she had there. Just before we left, poor Mama started crying because we were leaving to go home. We told her we would be back for Mother's Day but she thought that was a long time from now....We got a little smile out of her on this picture. Mom, will be 102 years old on July 18th. She has been diagnosed with having dementia .. her mind was clear earlier in the afternoon but later confused before we left to go home...I still love her anyway and none of us knows what the future has in store for us. One thing she has never forgotten how to do is to play the piano and she has been a blessing to many people in her lifetime.

Happy Easter to everyone...

    What a precious capture, your Mother has obviously always been an inspiration to you, and it is hard to see her go down hill, but I know that you will give her the loving support and affection she needs throough these later years in her life. I hope that you had a lovely day.

    Your mother looks so healthy! I am sorry she is suffering from dementia. It is cruel. She is fortunate to have you.

    She is so beautiful Andrea. What a wonderful gift you have in a mother. I pray the dementia is very slow in moving forward and you get to have many more happy moments with her.
